We are big fans of the Food Network and one of our favorite tv chefs is Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman. If you watch the show, then you know that one of Ree’s favorite ingredients is Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.

We have seen it at the grocery store many times, but never felt compelled to grab a bottle and put it into our cart. However, one fine day last week, we decided to make breaded pork chops and saw Ree’s version used seasoned salt. We didn’t want to run to the grocery store, so decided to look up a copycat and version. It was so good, we have already added it to all of our favorite savory dishes and it adds a great punch.

The effect is subtle, but definitely there! It has that savory taste, that “umami.” Wikipedia says that umami means “brothy or meaty.” Basically, it’s our new favorite thing in the kitchen!

Two more new seasoning secrets we are keen to try are Kitchen Bouquet and Gravy Master. These are both supposed to enhance the meatiness of dishes.

    An interesting recipe. Reaching way back in time . . . it seems to me that the knock-off recipes of decades ago included a bit of celery salt. I wonder if there is such a thing today. Also back in that same timeframe, Accent (MSG) was a big deal and was, I think, an ingredient of the Lawry’s Seasoned Salt. It was for that reason that I stopped using it at the time. Looks like it might be time to give it another try with this recipe. I don’t have any celery salt, but I do have plenty of celery seeds, so they are going into the mix.

    Regarding the sugar . . . I wonder what purpose it is meant to serve. I will try leaving it out to see the outcome. This is a small amount of finished product, so if it isn’t satisfactory without the sugar, it will be easy to add a reduced amount to either this particular batch, or the next. The amount of sugar is more than the volume of everything else in the aggregate, save for the table salt.

    Whoo-hoo! I always get frustrated as a Canadian seeing baking or cooking products on blogs that aren’t available in stores up here, so this copycat recipe is perfect for me! I can’t wait to try it out, and to see what other marvelous things you come up with on your blog. I’m totally in love with it! Thanks so much for all of your support on my blog. I hope we keep in touch!
